RECOVER Veterinary CPR Rescuer Certification – BLS and ALS

How do we best treat animals in cardiopulmonary arrest? Evidence-based veterinary CPR guidelines published by the RECOVER Initiative in 2012 aimed at maximizing patient survival after cardiopulmonary arrest led to the official veterinary CPR certification process approved by the American College of Veterinary Emergency and Critical Care.

This course will teach the concepts and techniques of RECOVER Basic Life Support (BLS) and Advanced Life Support (ALS).

The certification process consists of an online course followed by onsite training at the conference. Because of this, participants must have successfully completed the RECOVER online BLS and ALS courses - included in the registration -available at recoverinitiative.org (or have taken the courses previously offered by eCornell or Veritas).

Successful completion of this course grants certification as a RECOVER BLS and ALS Rescuer. Human medical professionals certify in human CPR. Veterinary medical professionals should certify themselves in veterinary CPR!

Registrants will receive access to the ONLINE courses shortly upon registration

The online course MUST be completed prior to the workshop to participate.

Basic Life Support Certification (2 CE Credits)

Participants will receive a review of core concepts in RECOVER BLS and have an opportunity to apply these concepts through scenarios using canine mannequins. Practice scenarios include single rescuer BLS and two rescuer BLS, with and without intubation. The session concludes with a practical assessment resulting in certification as a RECOVER Certified BLS Rescuer upon passing.

Learning Objectives:

·        Rapidly recognize patients with cardiopulmonary arrest

·        Properly administer high-quality chest compressions using the most up-to-date approaches in dogs and cats

·        Provide mouth-to-snout or intubated ventilation according to current evidence-based guidelines

·        Utilize effective communication and team skills that will improve your ability to manage emergent and critically ill patients

Advanced Life Support Certification (4 CE Credits)

Participants will review core concepts in RECOVER ALS through scenario-based immersive simulation. The scenarios will provide the opportunity to apply concepts in patient monitoring, use of drugs, defibrillation, and the decision-making process of appropriate interventions during CPR. The session concludes with a team-based practical assessment resulting in certification as a RECOVER Certified ALS Rescuer upon passing.

Learning Objectives:

·        Rapidly recognize patients with cardiopulmonary arrest

·        Properly administer high-quality chest compressions using the most up-to-date approaches in dogs and cats

·        Provide mouth-to-snout or intubated ventilation according to current evidence-based guidelines

·        Utilize effective communication and team skills that will improve your ability to manage emergent and critically ill patients

·        Choose the most useful monitoring devices for patients in cardiopulmonary arrest and interpret data from them

·        Rapidly diagnose the arrest ECG rhythm to determine the best ALS therapies for the patient

·        Administer the most effective drugs and other adjunctive therapies for patients with cardiopulmonary arrest
